The spectator is then asked to pick any of the loops, and hold on to that particular loop. The magi then pulls the ends of the rope, and all the loops disappear except the one that the spectator chose to hold on to, and (by the picture) it forms a legitimate overhand knot around the spectators fingers that he used to hold onto the loop. After looking at the "demo" (which I downloaded years ago, and don't know the source), I realized that it is only related, not the same. In the video clip, the magician creates a series of loops (from the string of a yo-yo), but each loop is around one of his fingers. He then pulls on one end and all the loops disappear (similar to the way sewing thread can be pulled away (unraveled) from the fabric if a piece of thread/fabric is cut way.) I've been pretty diligent about cross referencing tricks, yet each of my cross references were only "related", so I have no other name for the trick, BUT, looking at the text, Fulve's writes that it was invented by Roger Penrose (I'm sure just coincidence) John [/quote]
